Not fully excavated

Canterbury is one of the oldest cities in England and consequently there are many historical and archaeological sites around the city. A few years ago, archeologists spent quite some time excavating the area under Whitefriars Shopping quarters but they run out of time so they mapped the areas and once they paved over it they drew on the top of the paving, marking the areas studied. This is a picture of one of the drawings.
If you look close you can see that it says "Not fully excavated".
